"A missile attack on the medical clinic in the city of Dnipro. As of now one person is known to be killed and 15 wounded (later it became known about 16 wounded - ed.). The elimination of the consequences of the shelling and the rescue of victims continues at the site. All necessary services are involved," he wrote.
